Some people just scream about anything before giving it thought.
I was instructed to compile the mock without trades aside from the Rams pick, so I didn't incorporate any other trades into it. I love Fleener, but the mass hysteria and absolutely absurd "Fleener or nobody" mentality is getting beyond out of hand. People need to calm down.
OTC, make some more trades if you want (while describing the trade in the comments). I did not mean to limit you in trades. If you feel there is a legitimate trade to be made, go ahead. I just said that because I saw one mock that had like 10 trades in the first round which seemed excessive. And it had the 49ers trading their pick as one of those picks so I could not even see who they thought the 49ers would select -- which made me sad -- even if it was realistic. If there is an obvious additional trade or two, go right ahead for your next version.
Generally I prefer to make actual "mocks" without trades incorporated, but for the sake of realism, I think if we want it to be as close to the real thing, there will likely be at least 3 trades in round one. I can see Washington, and several teams in the 20s looking to move back, including us possibly.
